Are you already tired of the 2016 presidential race, even though it’s not yet 2016. Are you tired of listening to Ted Cruz’s hatefulness and Donald Trump’s stupidity? (Or is that the other way around?)
If so, then you might want to join the coalition of local community organizations and others gathering next Monday, Sept. 14 to march to “Dump the Trump and Lose the Cruz.”
The March Against Hate (Anti-Donald Trump March) steps off at 5 p.m. The march begins in front of the Cathedral Virgen of Guadalupe, 2215 Ross Ave., and concludes at the American Airline Center, 2500 Victory Ave.
Trump, who’s leading the field of Republican presidential candidates, will be speaking at a meeting at the AAC at 6 p.m.
Among the coalition organizing the march are LULAC Council 102, Dallas Councilman Adam Medrano, DISD trustee Miguel Solis, state Sen. Royce West, Dallas County Schools trustee Omar Narvaez, Tejano Democrats and more.
Domingo Garcia, president of LULAC Council 102, said his organization is supporting the effort to “deliver a clear message to Donald Trump that Hispanics, blacks and women are not political pinatas.”
Garcia said that participants are asked to bring only United States flags, to wear red, white or blue clothing, and to march peacefully. He added that all organizations and community groups are invited to participate.
